Running docker on MacOS requires a virtual machine running Linux. The
Docker for desktop app for MacOS hides that detail away from the user
for the most part.

It is technically possible to do what you want (make it so Frescobaldi
can call multiple versions of LilyPond) with docker, but there would be
some work involved: you'd probably need to have one-liner shell scripts
for each version of LilyPond that execute the relevant container.
