ConTeXt saves by default the list entries without expanding them
which means you get "\getvariable{TOC}{list}" as entry in the table
of contents for your section section entry but at this moment you
haven’t set a value for this variable.

To get the content of the variable in the list entry you have to expand
the argument of the list key, one way is the use of the \expanded
command as shown by Marco but you also let ConTeXt do this for
you (no need for \expanded{…}) when you add


at the begin of your document.
