An XML sitemap would be for SEO, but I wouldn't think that would be the intention for an html one. I've been known to look for an html site "map" on sites before if I can't find what I'm looking for.

Isn't a sitemap more for SEO then actual navigation?

Subject: [WebAIM] Position of the link "sitemap"

Hello listers,
Greetings for the day!
In recent discussion, many of my team members had some queries about the placement of the link "sitemap"within a website, wherein a sitemap would refer to link to a site map that lists all of the resources that were present in the site.

As a predictability in most of the web pages, the sitemap used to be within the footer.
Whereas, let me know your thoughts about the placement of the sitemap within the header which was a design requirement.

i.e.when read with a screen reader, sitemap would beĀ  above the search field.
Thanks in advance for your response.
Regards,
