Agreed, I'd never put a phone under water ''just to test it'' (although we do here, but that's so you don't have to!)

Even though your Moto G would still be under warranty, water damage is not covered, especially because the device ws never advertized as being water resistant. I would recommend getting more opinions and then go with the majority evaluation.

It sounds to me like it is a touchscreen response issue, not a fried motherboard. Part of it depends on whether you dried the device out properyl after it was wet and where the water might have gotten into things.
