I had an MB C-Class that did this all the time in hot, humid weather. The air distribution was set up to always deliver a very small amount of air through the upper defrost vents to help with overall cabin circulation. I've had my 535i for two years though, and have never noticed this, nor ever checked for air coming through the upper vents when in normal "hot weather" auto air distribution.
