This is especially true when there is a vapour barrier above the drywall. Water can get to the vapour barrier and then run to the low spot maybe in the center of the room if the ceiling sag or the edge of the ceiling if the joists are crowned up, once it finds a screw hole or some path to get thru it can still travel some distance between the vapour barrier and the drywall.
