My 2008 Elantra SE has a knocking/tapping noise coming from somewhere near the firewall, deep behind the dash.

Sounds similar to if you rapidly tapped an eraser on your desk. This noise presents itself when in gear (drive or reverse) and at a complete stop. Goes away in park, neutral, or if the car is rolling.

Car runs great and idles normally. A number of mechanics told me the engine mounts are bad. I've had all of the mounts replaced. No effect.

Would be great to have an idea what I'm looking for before I tear apart the dash. Anyone else have experience this or have any ideas?

Motor mount was my first guess before ever getting to your line about "a number of mechanics told me...". Did you also do the mount(s) on the transmission (driver's) side?
