yes, i have a good google track record..  ;-) 

on that site, read good.. 
With the Firewalld package, the firewall configuration of the main services 
(ftp, httpd, etc) comes in the /usr/lib/firewalld/services directory.

So do DONT touch the content /usr/lib/firewalld/services 
copy it ( or some) and add it in /etc/firewalld/services  make your changes there.. 

If you touch content in /usr/lib/firewalld/services you may loose it with an update.
