As Wolfgang said, the 2nd argument of \startplacefigure is for specifying
userdata, not the location of the figure. To specify the location of the
figure, use the location key:

\starttext
\startplacefigure
[
reference=fig:cow.pdf,
title={Figure A},
location={here,page,force,nonumber},
]
\externalfigure[cow.pdf][width=.5\textwidth]
\stopplacefigure
\stoptext
