The new beta let you change the stopper symbol which is shown in the reference,
to disable the stopper you have to use “numberstopper={\symbol[none]}”.

\setupexternalfigure[location=default]

\setupcaption[figure][numberstopper=:]
\setupreferencestructureprefix[figure][default][numberstopper={\symbol[none]}]

\starttext

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

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

\stoptext
