Taking an educated guess, I'd say that Mr. Wolfe did NOT do that cover. Any credit inside on the copyright page?

My June 1984 edition of the "Doom" novel says, 'Cover art and insert supplied by Lucasfilm Ltd.' Wolfe gets the shaft again! No wonder it was so difficult back then to find out who the artist was.

In my neck of the woods, I seem to remember Wolfe's poster being around even longer than that. Possibly up to about a month (or more) after opening day.

Mike Vaughn is the name I have, too. The version you posted crops the bottom portion of the painting where the signature is. So both Struzan & Vaughn were allowed to sign their "Doom" work but not Wolfe. Very strange. Anyway, that's the highest-res image of the Australian poster that I've ever seen. Thanks for posting it, Rocket!
