That "wind noise" is normal. when the seats are down you are exposing a part of the car (trunk) that does not have nearly the same amount of sound deadening that the rest of the car has. Sometime look behind the carpet in the trunk and you will see just bare metal. If you were ever to pull your door panel off you would see foam and something that looks like the stuffing in a quilt. All that material in the doors and under the interior carpet absorbs road noise. The trunk does not have this.

There is a air vent in the trunk.
That is properly making all the noise.

You can especially hear it when driving in the rain.
