Some brands do contain small amounts of ethyl alcohol as a preservative. For example, the Haechandle brand of gochujang and the doenjang from Singsong Food Corporation that I have both have alcohol in them. (These are Korea-to-America exports; different brands may be available in Indonesia and ingredients may also vary.)

As for determining whether the items that you have contain alcohol, you may have to post pictures of their lables and someone fluent in Korean would have to help you further.
