I would like to have heading numbers ended with dot in html:

* Heading
* Another heading

to be exported as

1. Heading
2. Another heading

Is there any setting I can use?

You could solve it with a css style appending your dots:

span[class^="section-number-"]:after {
    content: '.';

This can also be embedded in the org document:

#+HTML_HEAD_EXTRA: <style>span[class^="section-number-"]:after { content: '.'; }</style>
