[PVE-User] swappiness on Debian container

Hi all,

Proxmox 6.2-6, one of containers (Debian 9.9) is swapping memory even 
though it has plenty of unused RAM left.

I've tried suggestions from:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/157793/why-is-swap-being-used-even-though-i-have-plenty-of-free-ram
https://askubuntu.com/questions/192304/changing-swappiness-in-sysctl-conf-doesnt-work-for-me

to change the default 60 to 10, rebooted multiple times but none of them 
is taking an effect.

I've tried switching between privileged / unprivileged container as well 
as enable nesting. Still no joy:

$ sudo sysctl -p
sysctl: setting key "vm.swappiness": Read-only file system
