Why does qemu insist on putting a floppy icon on the desktop and entering a menu item for a non-existent floppy in Thunar?
I think you'll find qemu does not put any icons anywhere. It just emulates the hardware of a PC. The window environment inside the guest OS draws the icons. But qemu can emulate a floppy drive, and this may be detected by the guest OS.

  This file does not exist on the imaged system but pops up in qemu.

hwinfo --short --floppy

  /dev/fd0            Floppy Disk

How are you starting qemu? Is it from libvirt, or are you running qemu directly from the command line, or some other way?

Post here the command line options which qemu is running with. On the *host* system (the real hardware), try typing:

    ps auxwww | grep qemu-system-x86_64

Also, inside the *guest* OS, try typing:

    dmesg | grep floppy
    dmesg | grep fd0
