I think you should include them though, and Libya, as the definition includes rain for example so does not only apply to water surfaces

I was expecting to see the Black Sea basin countries too, since the Black Sea itself is in the Mediterranean Sea's drainage basin.

A drainage basin is not defined by rivers, but by hydrology as a whole, meaning where runoff flows regardless of surface water features. Also, according to this map, even microcountries in and around the mediterranean with no river should be included in the Mediterranean drainage basin if the rain that falls on those countries eventually feeds into it.
