The ConTeXt plugin (as well as MetaPost and MetaFont ones) has recently
been rewritten in Vim 9 script (the new scripting language embedded in
Vim), which NeoVim does not support, afaik. See this thread:
https://github.com/vim/vim/issues/10968.

One thing you can do is: grab the old runtime files and put them in you
own ~/.vim directory (following a similar layout). You may get those
from the `runtime` folder of the Vim project:
https://github.com/vim/vim, or from NeoVim repo. Just checkout
a revision with the old scripts (searching for "update runtime" in the
commit logs should help you filter the relevant commits).
