Firewalld: Whitelisting/blacklisting Addresses Allowed To Connect To A Service/port With Ipset

I’m trying to figure out how to use firewalld on CentOS 7 to block access to SSH (on a custom port to control log bloat) and SMTP submission except for specific source addresses, using ipset. I haven’t been able to figure out how to combine a port number or service name with an ipset, either as a blacklist of nets or a whitelist of addresses. It looks like ipset with type of “hash:net,port” might work but the current version of firewalld on C7 doesn’t support that type. I fear I’m going to have to write a direct rule. Has anyone combined ipset with a port to achieve this? I tried a rich rule but I can’t specify both an ipset and a port as the source value.
