We're talking normative cases here, and in the general case the usage is sit on or lie in. Yes, one could find a corner case such as yours, but then you can find exceptional cases for nearly any English sentence that would render computational linguistic testing near impossible. One could easily see how "He is a woman" is a valid statement in English under specific conditions, but Duolingo rightfully would consider it wrong.
