Update: I’ve gotten a response from the Docker team:

Docker for Mac has been configured to use the external ntp pool for timekeeping. This is not correct, it should be using the host as an ntp server, like it used to. I will open a ticket to get this changed. This is not a security issue however, just a misconfiguration.

The external tracker for the issue is here:
