Is the installation of the Apache web server done from the binary packages in the distribution or from source code?

Installation where?

(If this is indeed a Docker-related question, then obviously the official image may help.)

when we use
docker pull httpd
in our host

I’d not use the term “installation” in this context. It’s just a ready to use (binary) image, in which Apache httpd is already installed, and which a pull copies to your host as is.

After installing the web-server package group or the http package, a default configuration is written to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.
