It might be a parser issue. ConTeXt uses different parsers for
different commands. Most commands happily accept values without
trailing comma. The commands using a different parser require a
trailing comma. I recall this applied to \definepalet, \usepath and
a few others.

The issue occasionally pops up on the mailing list, since it's
inconsistent and non-intuitive behaviour.


Personally I don't use that syntax any more. It doesn't work
reliably and fails occasionally with particular commands.
