My understanding is that there are two different types of container support on Windows - Windows Server Containers and Hyper-V containers. The latter runs in a lightweight virtual machine, while Windows Server Containers do not, and do not include the operating system kernel, so will not have the same size footprint as a full Windows install running on bare metal.
