I ended up reading the lxc source code at times :(

Perhaps your cgroups aren't mounted in the 'right' way?

Are you using systemd ?

Can you apply limits to the cgroup once the container is started ?

(In my case - e.g.

lxc-cgroup -n containerName memory.limit_in_bytes "300M"

or if you're feeling braver just write to the file(s) probably in 

I just have cgroups mounted with this in /etc/fstab :

cgroup /sys/fs/cgroup cgroup defaults 0 0
