It’s already obsolete as you noticed by the “undefined control sequence” warning.

The reason for this is that \startMPpage and \startTEXpage are now defined in a different
way than they had been in MkII. In MkII both commands are defined with \def\startMPpage{…}
and \def\startTEXpage{…} but in MkIV both are a instance of fittingpage and the definition
for them is \definefittingpage[MPpage] and \definefittingpage[TEXpage]. As a consequence
the old \setupMPpage command is also gone and you have to set global settings with
\setupfittingpage[<environment>][<settings>].

Such a changes do happen with many commands in MkIV and the setup-commands
for them are moved to the underlying mechanism (e.g. fittingpage).
