    Avant rear steaming-up...

    ...not from anything naughty unfortunately

    but seriously though, it just looks like the whole rear is damp.
    Rear screen can be demisted easily enough but the rear-rear-side windows cannot

    there seen to be vents along the bottom of these windows but no air blows though them

    so... is this likely to be a leak into boot area or a ventilation problem of sorts?..

    Funny you say this as I had the same thing yesterday? Maybe the fan blower isn't as powerful as it was from new???

    Check the rear water pipe for the wiper isn't split. access it via the cubby hole (its above) in the boot area on the driver's side, or the inside of the tailgate isn't wet - sure sign rear wiper motor is leaking and on its way out. Lift the floor to check spare wheel we'll is nice and dry too.

    Same thing happens with front windows when plenum chamber in bulkhead is full of water.

    have you checked the carpets in behind the driver and passenger seats? sound like you have damp water ingress somewhere.

    water runs down the boot lid groove (look when open) and in the top of the indicator lens
    cubbies will be dry when you look in but they are VERY deep
