Default Door drain holes

Hi,
Has any one else noticed how much water has to collect in the bottom of the doors before it reaches the height of the drain holes in the door,or am I missing something in the bottoms of my doors

The rectanglar holes are on the very bottom outside of the weatherstripping, about an inch long.
Should not be much water, maybe 1/2 cup, then drains out?

I do have the rectanglar drain holes,just concerned with the water that sits in there untill it reachs a height to run out the drain holes.
I thought that the bottom of door may need to be filled with sealer to reduce the distance before water reachs the drain height.
Was this done from new?
