They're not quite the same as Docker images, but the iocage jail
manager supports "plugins",
https://iocage.readthedocs.io/en/latest/plugins.html.  They're canned
instructions for building an image for a particular application, not
ready-made images, but they work similarly.

FreeNAS/ixSystem supports a set of about 30 and there's a repository
for community plugins:
https://github.com/ix-plugin-hub/iocage-plugin-index

There's a nice, recent tutorial that covers creating plugins over on
the FreeNAS blog site:
