If it is rusted out yes. find a friend that is NOT claustraphobic and have him get in the trunk and close it. oh and he will need a flashlight. also becareful when you close the trunk that he is not near any of the hinges when you close it. I was the one to get into the trunk one time and the person slammed it down and i nearly was struck with one of then hinges use a hose and spray a small amount of water along the opening of the trunk.... have your friend keep and eye on the weatherstriping around the areas you are spraying. if it's leaking that way you will located it quickly.... now let your friend out of the truck.
If you can't find anyone to get in the trunk while you test it.... just by a replacement weatherstripping.

Kind of back yard mechanic way to do it but it's effective.

Water leaking from plugs on bottom of gas tank

That makes no sense whatsoever. If water were coming out of the fuel tank, so would fuel and the car would not be driveable in that condition. What you are thinking is the fuel tank may well be the bottom of the trunk. The spare tire wells in most trunks have drain holes in case water gets into the trunk. This is more common than you think. The gasket that seals the trunk lid often gets loose over time and allows water intrusion. The water finds its way to the spare tire well and drains out.

Holes in the trunk?

These plugs are for draining water from the wheel well. There may be a leak behind the lights leave one of the plugs out for a day or too and see how it goes

1997 Olds ** watr leaking into floorboard. By searching all over google- i found a few situations where this car has a "wheel well" problem of throwing water from tire up into wheel well which...

No, you would need to replace the well but it sounds like this is not the problem, most of these that rott are visible with a light shining from outside in with trunk carpet removed from the sides, i think your problem may be in the front area. try sparing with a water hose, no pressure hose, spray around windsheild and see if it leaks inside, another thing to check is the heater box drain, theres a small hole coming through firewall that comes from the heater box , this drains water from ac and wtare that gets into box and drains it outside, check that to make sure its not plugged. if you notice the water after it rains then its not the heater box but check it anyway.

Aftermarket stuff is not "required" to be water proof.. only "cool"..
You might try silicone sealant to fill any gaps around the tail light...
...You need two people ... check at night for leak points,...YOU get in the trunk....(MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT TAKE THE KEYS WITH YOU INTO THE TRUNK!!)..,, have someone else use a flashlight to shine ALL around the lights to pinpoint the leak points..also check the entire trunk sealing area... its easy to see the light shining through where water leaks...

2000 seville sls trunk tire well full of water

These cars (Sevilles) have a problem with water in the trunk. It comes from clogged sunroof drains. There are 4 of them. One in each I-Pillar and one on each side that travel back toward the trunk. They can get clogged, and my mechanic tells me that this car has had issues with this.

Pontiac Bonneville with water leaking into trunk

same problem happened to my 2005 bonneville. inside the trunk and behind the carpet covering the wheel wells there are two water drain tubes. these tubes run down the inside of the "c" pillar and drain the water from the sunroof. they make a 90 degree bend at the bottom back of the wheel well(inside the trunk) and fit inside a round rubber tube/grommet at both of the rear wheel wells that lets the water drain outside.either the plastic 90 degree tube has come out of the rubber tube/grommet or the drain tube could be plugged up with debris. also make sure the two round rubber tube/grommets are installed correctly and seal the hole going through the trunk to the outside of each wheel well. this is of course only for those bonnevilles that have a factory sun/moon roof.

Trunk Leak

Most of the time when there is a trunk leak the seal is leaking around it I would check it for any bad spots and replace it if needed.
