I thought the present perfect for sitte was har sittet?

It is, but this is the present perfect of the transitive (and in this case reflexive) verb "å sette".

I can only find one other sentence with 'i gulvet': https://www.duolingo.com/comment/8752725

Most of the times you would use 'på'.

Yeah, that was the sentence I was thinking of. Does 'i gulvet' imply impact or crash?

'i gulvet' normally implies something being inside of the floor.
