RTFM!!! man ipchains clearly states:
       -M, --masquerading
              This option allows viewing of  the  currently  mas­
              queraded  connections  (in  conjuction  with the -L
              option) or to set the kernel masqerading parameters
              (with the -S option).
The emphasis lies on "currently*"! That is, only if a masqueraded host
hast open connections, something will show up!
