[CentOS] Centos6 iptables startup vs. restart?

What is different about the initial startup of iptables than 'service
iptables restart'  (and different from C5)?   I want to use iptables
port redirection to send port 80 to 8080 so a java web service doesn't
have to start as root.  On C5 it worked to give the iptables
commmands, then 'iptables save', and from then on it would
automatically work when iptables started after a reboot.   With C6, I
have the expected entries in /etc/sysconfig/iptables and they are
loaded after 'service iptables restart', but the initial startup is
doing something else.
