A "knock from a door behind us" is easily heard from any properly set up DD5.1 (6.1 or 7.1) system and doesn't require ATMOS.

The main benefit of ATMOS is to generate a "height" component to the audio.

For example, here's how to set up a 7.1.4 system (the last "4" refers to 4 ceiling speakers or upward-firing speakers.)
