How can I direct mlocate/updatedb to include files on filesystem sdb2 mounted on /run/media/... to be included in the indexing. Currently, mlocated refuses to include those.

If you you want these files to be indexed and consistently available, why not just create an fstab entry for them? It doesn't make sense to add transient, temporary storage to the locate database.
