It used to be a lot more strict, though never 100%. In the middle of this year, Google really loosened things up.

If your site uses a gTLD and hasn't been designated in WMT as targeting your country, then the explanation could be that it is an historical thing, e.g. it collected a lot of good links from your country. I have seen a few .com sites in Australia that show for "Pages from Australia" even though this has not been set in WMT, but they are old businesses with lots of links. They struggle to rank as well in other countries.

On a particular "London" related search on "country" on .uk I regularly get a site about London Ontario.

There are other searches where I know that there are more relevant sites in the US but page 1 is only UK sites on a web search.
