Thinking about how I prevented such parindents in my plain TeX days,
by using \ignorespaces\noindent in the definition of \section.  If
that's what ConTeXt does, perhaps the \placefigure code inserts a
spurious space, which normally doesn't show up because it's inserted
in vertical mode, but it is enough to confuse the \ignorespaces?
