Yes, it is located in /opt/context/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/mkiv/luat-exe.lua

Concerning the 'context --version' error message, the 'context.mkiv' is
also located in /opt/context/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/mkiv/
and not in /opt/context/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/ as printed
in the output.
