Section blocks do have a page key which is used ti switch to a right page at
the begin/end of the environment and this happens before the chapter
page break happens. You have to disable the page breaks for the section block
to have the right header/footer on empty pages.

\setupsectionblock[bodypart] [page=]
\setupsectionblock[backpart] [page=]
