It's easy to deadpan that you need to offer dry shoes to people you pick up in the rain, from your description. It could be clearer where the leak is compared to the side panels, etc.
It's pretty easy to test in summer with a nice nozzle; spritz it until what goes on does not drain out, and replace that outer seal with 50-year (silicone tolerates weather and temperature variance well) caulk or whatever is appropriate. It sounds like a wire access along the guttering is open or being splashed. It also sounds like a fair idea to get the car in the air and see that the drain holes in the frame, pan and shielding are not scooping up rain instead of just clear to shed it. Sometimes a bottom coating can come off sidewise....

look for rust holes, missing drain plugs, in the floor pan, under the car, spray when driving also comes up off the road and tires, there are a number of points of entry, seat mounnts transmission mounts
not really a solution, just something to check

Not familiar with the Volvo, but many cars (Toyota, Lexus, Acura, Honda, etc.) have drain holes at the corners of the sun roof assembly. These holes allow water that gets past the sunroof gasket to drain through tubes that carry the water to the bottom of the car, where it exits the car.
These drain holes are prone to clogging. If the Volvo setup is like those cars mentioned, you can see the front drain holes by opening the sunroof and looking closely at the two front corners of the assembly that holds the sunroof. I have used plastic weedeater line to open up these lines. Compressed air can also be used.
