If Germany and Poland count, I don't see why the following don't count: Russia (Konigsberg), France (Colmar), Belgium (Malmedy), Denmark (Sonderburg), Czech Republic (Hultschin), Lithuania (Memel), and The Netherlands (Wylerberg).

Those countries weren't listed in the wikipedia article from which this list was based: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_colonial_empire

But I can clarify the point by removing Germany and Poland and specifying non-European holdings.

Its probably because the listed places were colonial (world wide) possessions. The regions you listed were areas within the German Empire itself. Konigsberg for example had been part of Prussia for hundreds of years by 1914.
