Best would be to read from here:

"Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem
that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools,
system libraries – anything you can install on a server. This guarantees
that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is
running in. "

And see this picture:

In regards to the GPL, docker is, in my opinion, executable or object
form. And I am sure that people who prepare containers for conveying it
to others do not take seriously the obligation to provide the source
code or to copy the corresponding GPL licenses and other licenses along
with the object/executables provided.
