There is no category.php file in the theme, however that is because the file is not necessary. The template hierarchy is such that the archive.php template file will be used for the category layout. That is included in the theme and can be seen working on our demo websites. For example https://avada.theme-fusion.com/category/photography/.
The Theme Options for the blog archive can be found in Theme Options > Blog > General Blog – Blog Archive Layout. If those are not being used for you, please check with plugins disabled and any customizations removed (for example in child theme).
