I noticed that it's very briefly mentioned in the instructions for building a BOINC server from scratch that SELinux should be disabled. Is this absolutely necessary? How come? I am trying to create a BOINC server in a Docker container, which I believe require SELinux to operate correctly (not 100% sure!).

You can try to keep SELinux enabled and see if there are any problems. I tried it once, years ago and didn't get it working. Just be aware that SELinux may block some things the BOINC daemons do.
