```You have to provide a value for r.

ContourPlot3D[(x^2 + y^2 - z^2) Exp[-r^2/2 /. r -> 1], {x, -10,
10}, {y, -10, 10}, {z, -10, 10}]

But varying r doesn't seem to do much

Manipulate[
ContourPlot3D[(x^2 + y^2 - z^2) Exp[-r^2/2], {x, -10, 10}, {y, -10,
10}, {z, -10, 10}, Mesh -> False], {r, 1, 10}]
