Will cork underlayment absorb water if it gets wet?

Cork is a porous material, and it can absorb water if it gets wet. However, the extent to which cork absorbs water depends on various factors such as the type of cork, the density of the cork, the finish applied to it, and the amount of time it is exposed to water. Because of these facts, cork underlayment is not recommended when using self-leveling underlayment.
