I'm sorry, but this doesn't fit into the architecture/design of iptables.  The
counters beahve exactly like they are meant to behave.

The counters indicate how often a particular rule has matched.  And if a rule
that jumps to a userdefined chain is matched, the counter is incremented. 
Everything else would be confusing.

The numbers you need can easily be calculated afterwards in userspace by parsing
the iptables output.
