Just tried it. Seems to work. You are right in that it does not show 
much log information, but you can check whether the server is running by 
executing "ps auxw" inside the container

docker exec -ti my-radius ps aux

If you want to run the server with debug output on stdout, just use

docker run -ti freeradius/freeradius-server freeradius -fxx -lstdout
