Rear door vapor barrier leaking on floor board.

I have the rear door leak issue that seems to be very common with the 5 series BMWs.
I get a water in the rear floor mat area every time it rains.
I was gearing up to pull the rear door panels and reseal them.
Looking over the doors, mainly the bottoms I dont see where the water is meant to drain.
I dont see any drain holes. I thought perhaps there was a hole in the center of the two drain plugs located at the bottom of the door, but no.
So if my leak issue is the door panel needing to be resealed, how is the water to drain from the door?
Any advice on my leak issue would be great!
