Usually, this is because the content of the float is in a vbox instead of
a hbox:

\starttext
\startplacetable
\vbox{test}
\stopplacetable

\startplacetable
\hbox{test}
\stopplacetable
\stoptext

Use your favorite mechanism to create a hbox around the content and the
output will be okay:

\startplacetable
\hbox{\startlocalfootnotes
\startplacelegend[location={bottom,middle}]
\startcontent
\startxtable
\startxrow
\startxcell Alpha \stopxcell
\startxcell Beta\footnote{Footnote Here} \stopxcell
\stopxrow
\startxrow
\startxcell Beta \stopxcell
\startxcell Alpha\stopxcell
\stopxrow
\stopxtable
\stopcontent
\startcaption
\placelocalfootnotes
\stopcaption
\stopplacelegend
\stoplocalfootnotes}
\stopplacetable
\stoptext
