There isn't one.

The closest thing to it is the /var/lib/iptables/active file. You can
create this by first adding the firewall rules by hand (or through a
script) and then running:

iptables-save > /var/lib/iptables/active

This file will then get loaded on startup, or when you run:

invoke-rc.d iptables start

Alternatively, create your own script and symlink it into /etc/rc2.d.
This is my preferred solution.

Hope this helps,
