Can you make a example because I can’t reproduce the problem you describe.

\setupexternalfigure[location=default]

\setupcaption[figure][numberstopper=:]

\starttext

Take a look at \at{picture}[fig:cow] below.

\startplacefigure[reference=fig:cow,title=A dutch cow]
\externalfigure[cow]
\stopplacefigure

\stoptext
