Have you lifted the carpet? It may reveal a trail to the source?

No, it looks well installed and I am loathe to dismantle the cabin in order to lift it back

Damn Porsche build quality and engineering, I could have the drivers seat out and the carpet lifted back to the transmission tunnel and back seats of the Celica in 30 mins
Is it a big job on the 996
Question

You mentioned sticky .. to me thats sugar .. a drink of some sort.

You can do a partial carpet lift by removeing the bonnet / boot trim panel .. its a couple of allen keys and perhaps the fuse box cover .. x4 phillips screws .

You can then lift part of the carpet to get underneath and investigate .

To actually remove the carpet though is center consol out , drivers seat out , handbrake , gear lever out , rear quarter panel out .. and then if the carpet is still one piece you have to cut along the center tunnel part to seperate it ..

Its sounds bad cutting the carpet but its all under the center consol and not something that will make any difference .

To remove it all in one piece is an even bigger job .
