No coolant goes to the transmission. Probably a welch plug leaking or the heater core is leaking and coolant is coming from the A/C drain
hose

most likely the welch plug mine was leaking in that area as well when i brought my WH Ls1 it was a rear passenger side, unless there is a burst hose to heater core it wont leak lots like you say it is Define lots like do you have to keep filling it up to run the car or if left over night a puddle appears under the trany?

The A/C drain hose is above the transmission and as I said, if the heater core which is in the heater box is leaking coolant will come out of the A/C drain hose.
