What mechanism do you want?

If you wanted e.g. the highest-numbered category, you could use
r.mapcalc to create a map with the categories negated, run
r.resamp.stats on that, then negate the result.

Some other possibilities could reasonably be handled with a
combination of pre- and post-processing.

For others, the only practical solution is to modify
