Could be a slightly bent valve. Even though the seats look ok, it takes a perfectly straight valve with a perfect valve face-to-stem transition for the valve to seal correctly.

Did the compression gauge read anything at all during the test? 0 is low lol Either the valves in that cyl were bent, the rings were shot, you have a massive hole in the piston (which you said you didn't) or your timing belt jumped on that cam and the valves were timed incorrectly.
