When you print all footnotes entries in a single paragraph the inbetween parameter from \setupnote
is used to add something (can be a horizontal space or a symbol etc.) between the individual notes.

The inbetween parameter from \setupnotation is used when you have the setup \setupnotation[alternative=top].

Add \setupnotation[footnote][display=no] and the example will work.

It’s a bug because in the following example even the space between the notes is too big,
it should be 5mm but actually it’s 10mm.


\starttext \showframe
\dorecurse{5}{foot\footnote{note} }
