Request for Documentation: Deploy Mattermost on Docker (regarding "sudo chown -R 2000:2000")

In the docker-compose installation doc, under “3. Deploy the Mattermost Docker setup by running:”, we have:

sudo chown -R 2000:2000 ./volumes/app/mattermost/

Is this assuming the user:group of the user is 2000:2000, or does it have to be 2000:2000?

For example, should people check with this first:
$ id my_username, which is usually 1000:1000, then replace the guide with:

sudo chown -R 1000:1000 ./volumes/app/mattermost/



Would you be open to sharing this on our documentation repo:
