% puts the center of the bbox of path p at the point t
primarydef p centered t =
 hide(xshift := xpart t - (xpart urcorner p + xpart llcorner p)/2 ;
      yshift := ypart t - (ypart urcorner p + ypart llcorner p)/2 ; )
 p shifted (xshift,yshift)

draw fullsquare scaled 2cm shifted (50,3) centered (100,100);

% just for reference:
drawdot origin withpen pencircle scaled 10 withcolor red;
drawdot (100,100) withpen pencircle scaled 10 withcolor green;

(I thought there was a metafun definition for that but I cannot find it).

Best wishes,
