No, there are no services for iptables or nftables at this point. And
from my experience they are not needed for a relay. Okay, they would be
useful to increase security and to see how how Chinese government
officials and their automated services want to get into your server, but
it's not really necessary for the relay.
The relays are just some definitions in the torrc, and that's it.

I would only ask people who currently or previously ran a tor relay,
maybe even with Guix/GuixSD, to work on this. You can't break anything,
but to test it would be good. Which is something I can't do currently.
