Is the iptables' MASQUERADE a terminating or non-terminating target ?
Where is this officially documented ? The Netfilter's extensions man page does not mention it...

All NAT rules are terminating. Matching 2 nat rule at same time would be nonsense. Note that, by terminating I mean packet will exit from NAT rules and continue to other tables.
In addition, when first packet match a rule in NAT chains, other packets from same connection also will not traverse NAT chains.
