Do seeking Weapons (Drones, Plasma Torps, exc) Burn through like direct fire weapons? We have assumed yes but want clarification.

yes. Any volley that exceeds 10 points of damage will generate a burn through point.

See first sentence of (3C8):
If any volley (emphasis mine) consists of at least 10 points but does not penetrate a shield, score one ofthe points of this volley as internal damage using the Damage Allocation Chart (3D3) rather than scoring it on the shields.

And jut to add to that, remember:

(3A4) Volley Definition: A Volley consists of all of the damage from either: (1) all of the Seeking Weapons which strike a single shield during a single impulse or...

So if two drones strike the fresh #2 shield of a Fed Heavy Cruiser,you mark 23 boxes disabled, and roll for one internal damage point using the DAC (Rule 3D). Note, that this leaves the shield up (with one box remaining).
