Using the Alfresco Docker images, you typically do not configure the alfresco-global.properties itself, but use the JAVA_OPTS parameter to append a bunch of -Dldap.xyz.key=value property flags to it.
Generally speaking, it is completely normal for an Alfresco installation to contain multiple alfresco-global.properties files. There is a mechanism in place which will load sub-groups of them in a specific order, and typically the one in ..tomcat/shared/classes/ is the final one, meaning that it can override any configuration from other files of the same name.
As @afaust says, java_opts can be set in the alfresco-global.properties file located in $TOMCAT_HOME/shared/classes/ . The documentation provides an example here. Restart Tomcat & your changes should take effect.
