Can't help with your question unfortunately, but just wanted to say make sure it's only that bit. On my Mk3 that I got rid of a few months ago I found a pond in the spare wheel bay. After running a hosepipe around various areas of the boot I found it was coming through over the top of the light unit (both sides), stuck some insulation tape over it and part exchanged it a few days later for my MK4 :-)

I’m not convinced that plastic is your problem to be honest mate.

I would be more inclined to check the seals. Water tends to pool down the sides of the back window, so check there in case there is a small leak.

How much water are we talking?

The spare wheel bay was  full of water.

Is the boot liner wet on the top, or is the water just underneath?

Place cloths on either side of the boot see which side gets wet first

Check the seals on back lights,and the rubber grommets are sealed

in the drainage channel with sealant.
