Er, /etc/init.d/iptables (which will use
/etc/sysconfig/iptables) at the various boot-levels, yes.
  # chkconfig --level 2345 iptables on

/etc/sysconfig/iptables is not a directly executable script,
it's a config file with pseudo (and quite incomplete)
iptables lines and other info.

It is written (from the rules in memory) when you run:
  # sysconfig iptables save
