I have worked for 2 actual manufacturers accessing such situations that are elevated to the manufacturer at head office. I have not worked for Samsung, however.
I regret to tell you that you are not covered by warranty.
Definitions of fluid ingress are quite definite.
Some manufacturers offer "programs" for such instances.
Sorry, but in my opinion, based on my experience, you are not covered, despite your earlier issues.
PS...According to my memory,presently owning 3 Samsungs, they are somewhat resistant, but definitely not waterproof. The resistance is under certain specific definitions spelled out by the manufacturer.
Samsung has quite a bit of information available that I can locate.
This link explains how the IP (Ingress Protection) Rating works and what it will defend against.
I should note here that on that link it states not to expose your phone to "Water moving with force". Though not explicitly specified, this could include dropping into water from height. Especially since it would be reasonable to assume that "force" would be more than "Running water" which is specified.
This link specifically states the terms when water ingress occurs.
Section VI. Warranty Exclusions
C-1. Unless stated otherwise, this Warranty does not extend to loss caused by normal wear and tear, fire, water (liquid spillage or ingression), theft, vermin or insect infestation.
As much as I'd hate to say it, It would appear that your warranty has been voided due to water ingress in this instance.
Even if you did have a pre-existing fault, water ingress would overrule that.
