Output areas have only one category (1).

I agree that categories of input vectors are sometimes useful, unfortunately
this is not possible in v.buffer. For now, you have to do it yourself.
Using 'v.distance -a from_type=centroids max=<buffer_size> upload=cat' 
you get categories of all features within your buffer size buffer_size.
