I am looking for a door family the shows the door sitting in the wall in the correct location? revit door sit centered in the wall whether its a stud wall or a wall that has a stone veneer or brick veneer with a stud. I would like the door to sit in its proper location of the stud portion of the compound wall (stone-stud) and I am not sure how to do that or if anyone has done that already

Your definition of proper location and mine may be different ... especially depending on frame type.  And do you mean the door or the frame?

 

I modified our door families building them around a frame offset parameter.

my apologies, I am refering to the entire assembly. if I have a compound wall (stone-ply-stud-gyp) I would like the door at a minimum to sit within the stud portion of that compound wall. right now the doors seem to center themselves on the entire wall assembly. I believe the door and door frame should sit under the stud framing and not the stone portion of the wall.

You have to re-build the family as I did.   Typically, I like to start with a reference plane well off the wall with a setback dimension (like 12") off the face of the wall.  Then I add all the model components around this ref plane and end by setting the setback parameter to something more logical,
