I wish there were tables similar to pf, where a user could add a table entry to pf.conf and populate it with addresses and subnets.

The issue with FirewallD before version 0.9, the one in RHEL 8.5, was that it was in practice only for INPUT.
The 0.9 did add support for FORWARD filter "policies" that are essential in router (although EL8 as router has other issues too).
The 1.0 (RHEL 9) will finally support OUTPUT filter ...
