You are right. gdaladdo is not for creating higher resolution images. I
thought you needed the opposite.
I assume your landcover data is a classified raster. Classified data is
usually zoomed in with nearest neighbor interpolation. Unless you fiddle
with the interpolation window, the majority algorithm is pretty much the
nearest neighbor while zooming in.
If you want, you can convert the image into an RGB using pct2rgb.py and
work with the RGB image.
