ConTeXt has a token register called \everybeforeoutput, which sounds
somewhat similar to me. The only problem is that it does not auto-reset,
so you have to do that yourself (by globally redefining the macro
that is called)

  \prependtoks \outstuff  \to \everybeforeoutput

(there is also \everyafteroutput)

Whether that is usable or not for this problem, I do not know …

But I admit that I do not understand the problem all that well. I have
never run into a situation where I want the footnote to explicitly
*not* appear with its reference (except in endnotes). If my grid
settings were that specific, I would be using endnotes anyway.

Best wishes,
