Archibald Gracie said a large group of steerage passengers emerged from the Boat Deck foyer just before the final plunge. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some stragglers from that group but areas that close to the waterline would have been deserted.

I think it would be possible for some to get sucked inside as the bow slipped under, but I don’t think anyone would be inside near the staircase prior. Not on A deck anyway.
