The easiest solution is not to use \completepublications, but
\placepublications, something like this (untested):

   \section{References}
   \switchtobodyfont[8pt]
   \placepublications

I believe this may depend a bit on your ConTeXt & bib module version(s).

The current one looks fine (I think), but I know for a fact that there
have been some problems with older versions, and perhaps they have
not been resolved properly. See the options to \setuplist in texshow,
if you want to tweak the spacing between items, you can use all those
options inside a \setuppublicationlist command.

Greetings, Taco
