As mentioned in the linked ticket, docker should be not supported on hosted macOS.

Unfortuately the docker community licensing is such that we are not able to install the docker for mac on our hosted runners.  We have had some discussions with Docker about doing this but they have held firm on their request that using Docker on a service requires an enterprise license and docker enterprise is not at all supported on macOS.

For Windows Microsoft holds the license for Docker Enterprise on Windows so we do not have any issues there and for Linux we use a specific build of Docker for Linux that is built and maintained by Azure.
