If it is the AC compressor that you are referring to, I would say you are correct. The AC compressor clutch bearings would go bad if salt water gets to it and since the vehicle was submerged till the floor board, the compressor would be damaged though it might take a little time before the problem kicks in. There is a possibility the bearing is seixed causing the compressor to fail.
Latent problems would be aplenty with the brake system, handbrake cables and others setting to go bad in the near future.
