Semantics..You may not have but you were basing your entire argument on the one THX guide.
Yeah and as we often discover a based set of recommendations as Sage11x also pointed out, isn't the set in stone gospel for all installs. Just like you don't tend to see any references to in-ceiling speakers in surround sound speaker placement guides (other than ATMOS), but there are plenty of good manufacturers who spec systems with them, Revel comes to mind for one.

i've been told that since the subwoofer is omnidiretional i can put it almost wherever i want? I'm gonna get the wireless one so i was thinking to put it behind the sofa, so basically between the surrounds, in that wall.

Sage11x is right and there's a ton of advice on sub placement on the forum - searching is your best friend here. That's a bit of an old HT myth about subs. Yes it can be hard to localise very low frequencies but as you hit the upper frequency of your subs crossover, it's position will start to reveal itself. That's why I gave you general placement advice to start you off.
