You need to decide what you want... a down or a sit and follow through with the command.

BUT-this is a puppy, so I would not be scolding him or giving great big corrections. He needs to be able to sit away from a person for a few seconds before you expect a sit near another person.

Often the down on their own is because they are stressed or because they do not really understand commands and so start offering you behaviors. Offering behaviors is a good thing, it shows the dog is paying attention and is trying to please you. But you can not tell the real reason over the internet. And it could be that he is just very relaxed and bored as you say.
