I think your expectations may be at fault.

In ConTeXt, ` is not "open quote", it is backtick. If you want an open
quote, you have to type one.

Typeset this text to see what I mean:

\starttext
` Backtick\crlf
' Apostrophe\crlf
‘ Open curly quote\crlf
’ Close curly quote
\stoptext

If you actually want backtick, perhaps you could say what you think is
wrong with it in Palatino?
