Default Installation on archlinux: Docker image vs compile from source

Xwang is on a distinguished road
Hi to all,
I'm using archlinux and I would like to install
I have two option:
1) use the docker image
2) compile from source (there is an AUR PKGBUILD).
Is there any difference when executing?
I think that the docker image could be more "stable"* and easier to update, but I do not know if there is any performance or usability issue when using it.
Can you help me choosing the correct way to install, please?

* being archlinux a rolling release and being openfoam not included in the official repository, it is possible that after updating a dependency a recompilation of Openfoam is required
