I've come to realize that seemingly only Arial font will print my Google Doc bullets in the correct size. If I use a different font, this happens:

Printed/downloaded to PDF:

As a workaround you can change the font of the bullet points (only) to Arial. There's a long thread about it and the workaround here: https://productforums.google.com/d/msg/docs/lsU8AMWoc8k/Yc3sd9U72OkJ


Another workaround is to change the bullet style by right clicking the dots. I managed to find a smaller symbol, although it wasn't a dot.
