"Orders for whole unit service inventory of iPhone 5c (16GB) models may be substituted to iPhone 5c (32GB) models until further notice," Apple said in a new to service to service providers today.

Not all 16GB iPhone 5c replacements will be upgraded to 32GB devices. However, some folks who take their iPhone 5c models in for repair for a manufacturing issue or other problem may see an upgrade to a 32GB unit. MacRumors says Apple hasn’t offered a reason why some 16GB iPhone 5c models are being replaced with 32GB models, “but it's often due to available supply at any given time.”
