Only one table is used, regardless of how many tables and/or chains you
have. Everything goes into that one table. Having separate tables, one
for each chain, wouldn't be of much use (than you couldn't match
incoming and outgoing packets of single connection, unless you traverse
all those tables which is just the same as having one table).
