I am only 7+ years late, maybe this will help someone else. The foam peace between the door and the "Door trim panel" is called the "Water Deflector" The black glue is very close to "3M strip caulk" or "Dum Dum caulk. They both remain soft and sticky.

That used to be a very common problem. The drains ( a rubber stopper) were usually hidden by the rubber weather stripping on the bottom of the door.
