indeed

\setupsectionblock [frontpart] [page=] % yes by default

the reason is that marks needs to be synchronized; if you add your own \page
command, make sure that you do it at the right moment

page changes are always a bit tricky esp since one wants header etc to be nicely
in sync as well; also,

\page <some node> \page

can introduce empty pages (tex related, not so much context)
