Hi John,

this isn’t wrong. Makeup pages aren’t numbered by default.

Add "pagestate=start" to the makeup you want to get its page numbered.

To avoid adding the same options to every single makeup, add in the

   \setupmakeup[pagestate=start, doublesided=no, page=yes]

BTW, I don’t know whether this is is the best way to surpress page
numbers in texts. Because makeups don’t split texts in pages.

I hope it helps,
