I've only just realised that TeX seems to reserve space for the
footnotes at the bottom of the main text area. Check the following
example:

\setupnote[footnote][width=\rightmarginwidth]

\setuptexttexts[margin][][{\framed[frame=off,rule=off,offset=none,align=low,height=\textheight,width=broad]{\placenotes[footnote]}}]

\starttext
text\footnote{one} text\footnote{two} text\footnote{And here we have
  yet another footnote spanning more than one line.} %
{\dorecurse{4}{\input tufte\par}}
\stoptext

I've tried the same with \setupfootnotes and \placefootnotes to no
avail.

Any hint will be appreciated,

Elias
