Docker-compose- folder ownership behave differently on two machines

I have two Ubuntu server with the same Docker version (see below) same docker-compose version (see below). I deployed the same image on both machines and I run the container with the same docker-compose.yml file.

My problem is that I have different behaviour for what concerns folder ownership inside the container:

This is what I get on one machine:
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Apr 15 13:18 myfile1
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 15 12:32 myfile2
drwxrwxr-x 2 theuser theuser 20480 Apr 15 13:13 myfile3
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 15 13:18 myfile4

But this is how I set it and how I get on the other machine:
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Apr 15 13:18 myfile1
drwxr-xr-x 2 theuser theuser 4096 Apr 15 12:32 myfile2
drwxrwxr-x 2 theuser theuser 20480 Apr 15 13:13 myfile3
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 15 13:18 myfile4

Do you have any idea why it is so?
