I think you are looking for something that has never existed in Debian or
in Ubuntu. 

You can certainly configure starting and stopping of iptables - I have a
couple of scripts that I wrote to do just that, with appropriate hooks
exactly where I wanted them.

State 5 ? Can you explain this? Do you mean run level 5? If so, I wonder
again whether you are looking for something that does not exist by default
in Debian or Ubuntu, because a default configuration does not use that
run level. The multi-user run level is by default 2 both with X, and
without it, in Debian-based distros generally.
