This rings a dim and distant bell, back in the days of the MkII Astra, which often used to suffer from a similar problem. The floor pan has holes in it to allow it to be mounted on various jigs during assembly. These holes are sealed with little plastic plugs, which (in the case of the Astra) become brittle with age and then drop out. Water splashes the underneath of the car and ends up coming up through the carpets. Maybe something along the same lines has happened to your car.

To be honest though, I wouldn't worry about it too much. The car's still well inside its warranty period, so bang it into the dealer and let them figure it out.
Currently in Horatio's garage:
2010 Laguna III Initiale.
