Just need to know if this thing is attached in some way
I have all lines loose, but it does not seem to want to come out

I've looked it over.
There are no brackets that can be seen

Maybe screwed from underneath into the base of the water heater? Or maybe rusted to the floor?

         Depends   mine is attached ---remove the screws that hold the door----then the 3 long screws that hold the door to the heater--- the 10 gallon may be a little different.
           google the name brand, mine just slides in on a shelf, and has the above attaching point.

Ok for what it was worth.
Water heater was a Sears water heater. 20 gallons. Could not find a date on it, but seemed very old.
Black water ran out of it. I was planning on replacing it anyway.
Had to move it in order to get to the panel in the center of the bay roof.
The water heater had four bolts in the bottom plate. The bottom plate on the water heater must have been removed and bolted to the flour.
Then the water heater was put back together. When I get ready to put a new one in I'll will check and see if there is a better way to mount it.
Well that was fun (NO)
It also had a air tank of some sort hooked to it. HMMMMMMMMMMMM
Part water part air pressure.

Those air tanks are common in plumbing situations to help keep pressure constant and not have the TPR valve open up when the water gets hot.
