Hi Colaco,
To see a good idea of the Nieuport 17 seatbelt attachment, here is a link to a detail set done for the Hobbycraft N.17 by Rowan Broadbent.  Scroll halfway down the page and you will see a clear shot of the back of the seat.  This is correct, the seatbelts were riveted to the back of the seat, photos in the Windsock Datafile special on the Nieuport 17 confirm this.  http://www.theaerodrome.com/forum/models/44704-1-32-nie-17-cockpit-detail-set-master-patterns-wip-4.html

Of course the Nieuport 11 and 16 are different, since the seat has a shorter back and is mounted differently, the seatbelts attach to the framework somewhere behind the seat.  Unfortunately I don't have a clear photo of this.
