Stateful data refers to those objects that carry run-time data, e.g. the *counter* statement holds packet and byte counter values, making it stateful.
Upon insertion into the ruleset, some elements are assigned a unique handle for identification purposes.
For example, when deleting a table or chain, it may be identified either by name or handle.
