The document you mention is only relevant for LaTeX.

You have to use math mode to show the symbol but not every font contains it.

\setupbodyfont[xits]

\starttext
$ \bigstar \quad ★ $
\stoptext

The better solution is to use a symbol font like Font Awesome [1] which contains the symbol you want to use.
