Here, I used definetextbackground but the effect remains in floating objects as well. I tried different font styles and different font types, too.

indeed, as math is using another font (or more fonts), so best then do:

\switchtobodyfont[small]\bf

or so. An other alternative is to define a few more sizes:

\setupbodyfontenvironment[default][p=0.8,q=0.6]

\definefontsize[p] \definefontsize[q]

\usetypescript[palatino]

test $x$ {\tfp test $x$} {\tfq test $x$} test
