In my experience, Firewall as a service(FWaaS) has control over router ports but security group brings controler over instance ports directly.

Also security group is Backward compatible with Nova security groups (EC2 & existing nova deployments)

See all snapshots here. These are snapshot of FWaaS service, and how it works.
