No, but it is easy to define this on your own. To Hans: Is
reading utilities not implemented in mkiv? The following works fine with
mkii but not with mkiv.

\def\noffigures {1}

\def\savenoffigures
{\savecurrentvalue{\noffigures}{\getnumber[figure]}}

\appendtoks \savenoffigures \to \everystoptext

\def\shownoffigures
{\noffigures\ %
\doifelse{\noffigures}{1}{figure}{figures}}

\starttext

This text has \shownoffigures.

\dorecurse{10}{\placefigure{something}{} \input knuth \endgraf }

\stoptext
