Seals in trunk? Why??

Not sure if those plugs have a specific purpose. It is certainly a good design feature to be able to drain water from inside the cabin (incase of flood)
Unless those plugs are loose, I highly doubt that they are the source of your moisture. More likely weatherstripping or the window seal. There will probably some evidence of rust around the door or window if this is the case.
These leaks can be difficult to pinpoint unless you lock yourself in the cargo area with a flashlight and have a friend with a water hose spray water from the outside. Lucky for you that you own a wagon, and not a sedan!!
good luck, John

as far as wagons look for rusty spots and then above to locate any possible water entry

The bottom plugs or others I have no idea why they are there. Never had them out. Wouldn't be suprised if they give access to something. Pull them and look if you want.

I had the bottom plugs out (two 2 1/4" dia. rubber plugs)....I see the road.
Hmm. Then, yup, must be drainage.
