Do you mean your server has several IP addresses it is bound to and you only want the system to listen on one of them?  (I would reach for a firewall over application config for that)

Yes, my server has several IP addresses and I want to bound bitbucket to listen on one of them.

I don't believe Bitbucket has a setting to allow you to do that on the server side.  You will need to set up a firewall on that machine that blocks access over the IP addresses you don't want to have it available on.
