Water's been getting into rims and tires as long as there been bikes and rain. As BCRider says, just accept it and don't fret over it, unless you ride in the winter and are worried about the water freezing and cracking the rim (never heard of it actually happening).
Some rims are deeper and might take up more water, but if you leave the bike with the valve opening down most will drain, and the remainder will evaporate eventually.
