using the footcite command within the caption environment can cause strange results.
this seems to be a common issue and a workaround should be documented


One possible workaround is to use the commands \footnotemark and \footnotetext.
\foonotetext would then need the according string, that \footcite usually creates as a param.
However, footnotes may still appear on different pages than the figure. Using float-barriers for the figure positioning might help.
Biblatex provides a command \footcitetext which works with footnotetext internally. Hence one can reference within captions like that:

    \captionof{figure}[LOF entry]{Caption text\footnotemark}
