It swells and warps. If thoroughly soaked it's unlikely to return to its original shape entirely.

What is veneer flooring made from?

I think the type you refer to are tongue&groove boards made from material similar to MDF, only more dense, and harder than MDF. It is veneered in either natural timber or a hard wearing synthetic veneer which looks like timber. It is more water proof than MDF, but should only be cleaned with a damp sponge mop. If you slosh water on it, it will eventually get under the boards and swell them.
